The seasonal Easter event only lasts for one week, and it's a great chance to make some gold whether you enjoy farming or flipping!  Learn how to maximise your earning potential both during and after Noblegarden.

Introduction


The intention of this guide is to help you earn gold both during and after the event.  If you would like a comprehensive guide on the event itself and the associated items and achievements then check out our full guide HERE.

 

Important things to note:

 

The following items are trade-able:

There are other items that can be purchased from the vendor that are Bind on Pickup so do not make the mistake of purchasing things such as inv_misc_herb_rainpoppy.jpgMystical Spring Bouquet (a non trade-able non combat pet) to resell!

As with many events players generally pay for items that with help them towards an achievement or give them some form of vanity reward (such as a mount or companion pet).

Clothing


The clothing items are required for the two achievements
 
inv_shirt_08.jpgSunday's Finest
inv_chest_cloth_04.jpgDressed for the Occasion.

As outlined in our guide you must LOOT these items from the eggs themselves to gain the achievement.  This means there is little resale value.  However there will always be players that mis-read the achievement and feel they can complete it just through purchasing the item from the auction house.  
For this reason there is a small opportunity to make some gold perhaps in the first few days of the event as new players rush to try and complete the achievements. 
Personally I don't resell many of these items.  The return is fairly low unless you get lucky and have the only items on your auction house.

Do not waste any of your achievement_noblegarden_chocolate_egg.jpNoblegarden Chocolate purchasing these items.  

Companion pets



inv_gauntlets_02.jpgSpring Rabbit's Foot has a small chance (around 0.5%) to be contained in a inv_egg_06.jpgBrightly Colored Egg.

They can also be purchased at the vendor for 100 achievement_noblegarden_chocolate_egg.jpNoblegarden Chocolate.  Just like the clothing items, I recommend that you do not spend any of your chocolate eggs on the pet itself.

Throughout the event the price will drop dramatically and I have seen them trade for as little as 1g in previous years.
If you still have any available from previous events, or you are lucky to loot one within the first few days then you may see a decent return from the auction house if you post them early but this will depend on your server.

Sadly they are far too common and offer very little as a regular battle pet / companion pet that isn't widely available already (it has the same ability set as other rabbits).

As with any pet, there is improved opportunity for gold if you manage to upgrade the pet to rare quality and level it to 25. Prices generally range from 1k to 6k depending on your region and server.

Remember that inv_misc_herb_rainpoppy.jpgMystical Spring Bouquet is NOT trade-able.

The Swift Springstrider


Like most other seasonal events the mounts included in them can be very lucrative. For Noblegarden in particular the ability_hunter_pet_tallstrider.jpgSwift Springstrider is your best chance at making gold from the event.

There are three ways to obtain a mount:

As the event only lasts a week you may find it difficult to farm 500 chocolate eggs if your play time is limited in any way.

Ensure you are farming efficiently and where possible:

  • Use an inv_misc_easterbasket.jpgEgg Basket and set your environmental detail to low as mentioned in our guide.
  • Farming at off peak hours and in less common zones such as Mulgore / Exodar may reduce competition.
  • Be realistic with your farming time.  As there are few items to purchase other than the mount you do not want to finish the event on 750 eggs for example.  If you don't think you will gather enough to gain your next 500 and your next mount then it is better to stop and do something entirely different with your game time.

Selling your mounts for maximum profit can be tricky. Even if you have no intention of purchasing mounts to resell, i recommend that you read the section below. It may give you insight into timing your own sales. Remember it is relatively easy to sell them during the event, so if you are after a "quick" sale then ensure you do it during the week or not long after. Although you have a small chance to drop a mount from the eggs themselves do not farm with the intention of receiving one. Consider it a "bonus" if you do obtain one this way.

Buying/Flipping mounts
Buying items to resell (also known as flipping) can be an easy way to obtain a profit and can be done from the comfort of your own auction house. I will be producing a guide on Flipping in the near future but here are a few things to consider in the mean time:

  • It requires a gold investment that can sometimes be high risk
  • It may take a long time to sell so patience is needed
  • Seasonal items are commonly flipped so high competition is to be expected

As with all time sensitive events there is generally a cycle of how items are posted on the auction house. Timing your purchase correctly will yield in a greater profit, or help improve your chances of a resale. Although I cannot predict your own personal servers numbers, here is a general outline of how seasonal markets tend to work. (Note: This is meant in general terms and will depend on your realm population and various other factors such as how many players are both farming or flipping).

  • Players who have items from previous events or gain an item early tend to set a high price
  • This price will fluctuate over the first few days
  • Prices generally normalize towards the middle of the event
  • As the event comes to an end prices are generally at their lowest 
  • Close to the event ending and just after the event finishes players may try and purchase high volumes

One important thing to note. As there is very little to do in game right now and even less to spend your gold on, a large number of players may be willing to farm for mounts or are trying their hand at flipping certain items (this may even be you!). You are never sure of the true number of items on your server.  Invest at your own risk!

I will try and explain through a quick example. Lets assume there are 10 mounts in total on your auction house ranging from 18k-24k. Player A decides to buy all of them out in the hope of relisting them and monopolizing the market (thinking they have bought them all). Player A relists one or two mounts at 40k just to find Players B, C and D have another 15 mounts each waiting to resell and push the price back down to ~20k.

I am not discounting this method entirely, just be aware you will need large quantities of gold and a lot of patience if you truly wish to monopolize the market. When and at what price you wish to sell your mounts will depend on your mentality and possibly the amount of gold you currently have.  Do you like high turnover or prefer to wait for maximum profit?  Are you just looking for a quick sale to get some gold towards your next wow_token01.jpgWoW Token?

Again I cannot predict your own gold needs and wants so the decision is ultimately yours.
It is entirely feasible to buy and resell a large volume of mounts during the event itself. You may even wish to hold your entire stock until Legion is released.  There are potentially thousands of returning / new players who will be playing during Legion and with it comes a new mount collecting achievement. Some players (myself included) are doing just that, and with the Warcraft movie also being released soon there are possibly more new players coming to the game (although their desire for a seasonal strider mount is debatable).

Experience can play a big part in how you flip items, so if you are unsure, play it safe. Don't buy too many items and just be patient!

Remember

  • Never over-invest
  • Do not assume you have a monopoly just because you buyout the entire auction house
  • Try and get a feel for how prices are changing
  • Patience will yield the greater profit

I hope you enjoyed this guide to gold making for Noblegarden.  I plan on releasing similar guides for all of the seasonal events, and they will be updated yearly to include any new items or new gold making opportunities. As always if you have any successes then please feel free to share below!

Just a quick update:

 

There are no new items to trade for 2016.

 

It took me just over an hour of fairly intensive farming to get my 500 eggs. I am the first on my server with the mount so I have managed to set a hopefully high price.

 

Let me know if you get lucky!

      Did you miss any matches played at BlizzCon 2017? No problem! Blizzard uploaded a recap video of the WoW Arena World Championship with all important highlights.
      Congratulations to this year's world champions - team ABC! For more BlizzCon coverage check out our BlizzCon 2017 content hub.

      Miss any matches? Forget the final? Wonder who won? Look no further! We have all the action from the Arena World Championship world finals at BlizzCon 2017 right here.
      WANT THE TL;DR? WATCH THE RECAP VIDEO
      HOW CHAMPIONS ARE MADE
      In the opening week, ten teams descended on Anaheim in the run-up to the finals, with two teams eliminated on day one.
      Panda Global took down Rockets Eclipse with relative ease, to be met by defending world champions Method: Triforce. Panda Global were on fire, with the fever-pitch energy of the crowd fanning the flames. They beat the champions 3-1 in the semi-final to win their place in the final.
      EU VS NA
      Across the bracket, the top-seeded North America team—Method Synergy—faced Europe’s second seeded team, ABC. ABC’s tried and tested formula of Alec on Mage and Niksi on Rogue, seen the previous year, worked like a charm taking down NA’s #1 team 3-2.
      ABC EASY AS 123…4
      The finals in 2017 were once again NA vs EU. The comeback kids on Panda Global looked a little shaky and struggled to hold form, testing the limits of their passionate fans’ patience and creating a tense, exciting atmosphere throughout the arena. Sensing victory, ABC took full control; beating Panda Global in a nail-biting set of games 4-0—earning them their rightful place in World of Warcraft Arena history.
      CONGRATULATIONS TO ABC: WORLD CHAMPIONS!

Main goal of the patch are bug fixes and tuning in preparation for Legion's last raid Antorus, the Burning Throne. In addition to that, the patch introduced a new Primal Sargerite vendor and some exiciting lore details have been entirely omitted from the official patch notes for obvious reasons.
